    Every Occasion

    Well what do you think? Pretty isn’t it?

    I used the large blossom cluster from the Bold Botanicals set as my focus of the card.

    I used the frame from Killer Curves. I stamped it in olive ink, onto the white card base. I used the Killer Curves Cut Filefor my flower layer. I stamped the blossom in versamark, then I embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

    Once it was embossed I used a sponge dauber to add some pigment ink to the petals. I took a Fantastix stick to the ink, and used it aid in adding color to select places (without a mess) of the flower/leaves. The Fantastix stick acts as a sponge marker, allowing me this soft, and colored effect.

    I used some more stick pins in my ribbon. One is a orange flower (similar to my stamp) and the other is a green leaf 😀

    Along the bottom I needed something, but didn’t want whatever I added to overtake the design. So I turned to the Argyle Amazement set, where I built my pattern along the bottom, then scored 2 lines above and 2 lines below the argyle border. That is one of my favorite pattern building sets to date!

    Yes, I left this card BLANK! That’s right. No occasion assigned. Now I have a card on hand that I can assign for just about ANY occasion. You don’t always HAVE to assign a card to an occasion. It’s great to keep some blank canvas’ on file!

    Well, thanks for stopping by and letting me share my ideas. Maybe you will try coloring with pigment ink, and or embossing white on white too!

    The ideas aren’t done yet, so we will see you back here tomorrow.
